Thousand Guineas 2017 Predictions

Thousand Guineas 2017 Predictions

The Thousand Guineas Race is an annual race that happens in the Caulfield Racecourse. It is the female version of the Caulfield Guineas race. This year’s race will take place at the Caulfield Race this coming Saturday. It is a group 1 mile race that covers 1600m. It is run under set weight conditions. It consists of three-year-old fillies during the Melbourne Racing Carnival. This race may not be as exquisite as the Caulfield Guineas Race but the winner will still walk away with $500,000.

The race has been won by horse race champions such as Miss Finland and Allinghi. Miss Finland is actually the mother to Stay With Me who won the 2015 Thousand Guineas. Horses that run in this race will mostly have participated in the Edward Manifold Staes that happens two weeks before. Last year’s race was won by Global Glamour, which was rode by Kirren McEvoy and trained by Gai Waterhouse.

The race will take place on the 14th of October at 3:50 pm just before The Caulfield racecourse. It will be a competitive race on that day with eight fillies rallying up for the prize. This is, however, a decline from last year’s race where there were 15 fillies. The Racecourse is able to accommodate 16 horses per race.

Who will be the winner this year? Read our Thousand Guineas 2017 Predictions and find out!

1. Potential win

After losing the Flight Stakes, James Cummings was pushed to put his star horse Alizee back on track. She will join the Thousand Guineas to see if she can grab the $500,000 up for stake. If she wins this, she will be the second filly to win the Flight Stakes and the Thousand Guineas successively. She is currently trading at 2.20 to win with Unibet. She is currently at the top of the betting odds table.

2. The Thousand Guineas Prelude

During the prelude of the Thousand Guineas, Booker took the win and this will see her begin from the furthest gate. She won a tight race between her, Shoals and Catchy who is participating in this year’s Caulfield Guineas race. This has seen Booker’s trading price to be a 6.50 with Unibet and 7.5 with William Hill. Booker will be partnering with Dunn who will also be partnering with the Royal Symphony in the Caulfield Guineas race. Dunn was with Booker after her win in the prelude. Shoals is also very close in the betting field market with a price of 3.90 with William Hill. Shoal’s trainer Anthony Freedman confirmed her participation in this year’s Thousand Guineas race after she had just won in the Athletics Jewels Stake (1200m) that was held in early September.

3. The Fillies

Leather ’n’ lace was three from three preparation before she participated in last weekend’s Edward manifold Stakes where she finished third. She got into the Thousand guineas race with a current price of 12.00 with Unibet. Other horses that will take part in the Saturday race will include: Aloisia priced at 12.00, Mintha at 13.00, She’s so High at 14.00 and Pure Scot priced at 23.00 with Unibet.
